Networking in 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5.i686 is effectively disabled [security_compute_av: unrecognized class 57]
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
Description of problem:
No real network action succeeds in 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5.i686 kernel,
the kernel prints `security_compute_av: unrecognized class 57'
and the operation fails with `Operation not permitted'.
So I have to run the kernel with selinux=0 to get networking functionality.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just load the kernel
Networking functionality is effectively disabled.
Networking should be available.
selinux related packages installed on the system:
Exactly the same problems.
sshd, named, ping, and other network functionality stops working.
It continues to work as a router, but it doesn't connect itself to the network.
security_compute_av: unrecognized class 57
during bootup and shutdown.
I did a /.autorelabel, thinking it was a labelling issue, but same problems.
Everything works again with previous kernel.
I think this is high priority problem.
Could this be a initrd problem?
argh, this stuff should have been disabled. I've fixed it in CVS. There'll be
an update real soon. In the meantime, boot with selinux_compat_net=1

I also see the "security_compute_av: unrecognized class 57" messages on boot up
of one of my machines however this system never finishes booting to see exactly
what is impacted. I tried booting with "selinux_compat_net=1" and SElinux set to
enforcing, no luck. The only way I can get the system to boot is to disable
selinux or boot to the older kernel.
Oh I am sorry "selinux_compat_net=1" did work, sorry about adding a premature "Me2"
selinux_compat_net=1 also works for me
should be fixed in 2.6.18-1.2239.fc5 now in updates.
